Mike Malyon is a great nephew of William Sully White, better known as 1970s’ comedian and TV presenter, Larry Grayson. Mike first saw his uncle performing on stage around the local clubs under the name of Billy Breen. Mike then followed and shared the camp comic’s dramatic rise to stardom, when Larry topped the bill at the London Palladium, headlined sell-out shows throughout the UK, appeared on This Is Your Life and eventually hosted the chart-topping TV programme The Generation Game. Larry was adored by millions but the person who knew him best was his foster sister, friend and companion, Flo. Mike was close to both his uncle and aunt and inherited all their personal photographs, scrapbooks and memorabilia. He has also taken on the role of preserving the memory of a man whose ambition, from an early age, was to be an entertainer and who spent his life desperately seeking attention. Mike is a retired journalist who lives in the Nuneaton area.
